    I’m really confused. Isn’t the newspaper supposed to be in the bottom of the cage?

    Maybe I’m not totally free, but I am really (cheep)!

    But wasn’t it “White bird must fly or she will die?”

    It must not be a beautiful day.

    Fly away, little birdie! Fly away and join your friends. I guess I’ll just read this newspaper, instead of using it to line your cage. Sniff.

    blog – where do you get an ish watch. Since I’ve retired, that would come in handy for making appointments.

    Dracula and Nosferatu!

    Universal filmed two versions of Dracula in 1931; the English language version with Lugosi and a Spanish language version with Carlos Vilarias as the Count. The films were made simultaneously, in two shifts; the English version filmed by day and the Spanish version using the same stages and props at night. In theory they used the same script. Watching them shows the impact of Hollywood’s self-censorship on the movies. The Lugosi version often pulls its punches, andthanks to various cuts is a half-hour shorter than the Spanish version. (The censors were out to protect the delicate American audience; Hispanics, it seems, had tougher moral fibre, and needed no protection.)

    The Nosferatu ad is for the film’s 1929 American debut in Manhattan. Along with its handsome, nay, debonair leading man, it is the first cinematic version of Stoker’s book. It makes some changes in the story which I believe reflect the German experience of the Great War: Knock, the sinister estate agent, makes a secret pact with evil. He sends Hutter off on a profitable adventure, and like many young men in 1914 Hutter is at first delighted with the prospects. He soon comes face to face with death and terror, and barely escapes with his life. Back on the home front, the consequences of Knock’s pact bring death and illness to the people (think Turnip Winter, blockade and Spanish Flu). It ends on a hopeful note as Knock is beaten down and Wismar (Weimar?) is freed of the evil.

    (Probably other people have thought of this, but I haven’t seen it written anywhere.)

    Of course that bird wants to fly the coop. Thanksgiving draws near and if he stayed, his goose would be cooked

    Cat head biscuits, made with real lard, can’t be beat for good, down-home satisfaction.

    I guess at the nudist colony they allow smoking at the sushi microbrew bar.
